't really matter anymore, that we don't need social provisions, we don't need the welfare state, that the survival of the fittest is all that matters, that in fact society should mimic those values in ways that suggest a new narrative. i mean, you have a consolidation of power that is so overwhelming, not just in its ability to control resources and drive the economy and redistribute wealth upward, but basically to provide the most fraudulent definition of what a democracy should be. i mean, the notion that profit making is the essence of democracy, the notion that economics is divorced from ethics, the notion that the only obligation of citizenship is consumerism, the notion that the welfare state is a pathology, that any form of dependency basically is disreputable and needs to be attacked. i mean, this is a vicious set of assumptions. >> are we close to equating democracy with capitalism? >> oh, i mean, i think that's the biggest lie of all actually. the biggest lie of all is that capitalism is democracy. we have no way of understanding democracy outside of the market, just a

all of these technological assets and human assets, we're not there, we don't know, and i think there is a lot of room for error. >> you can see robert greenwald's film in its entirety at the website i urge you to watch it with a companion because you will want to talk about the questions it raises concerning national security, drones, and the nature of war. then i'd like to know what you think. remember that in the excerpt we showed earlier the former drone operator says, "this is what we do, we kill people and break things, this is what our job is." it's true. once we insist on war as a solution, this is always the outcome. there is no way to avoid killing the innocent when you've determined to destroy your enemy. our own government has fought our wars by dropping atomic bombs on whole cities. by firebombing. carpet-bombing. by spreading the poison of agent orange over the homes and farms of noncombatants. by splashing burning napalm on children. in this war on terror, we're told either we put boots on the ground and see our own young men and women kille

media center, which i head. >> we don't have a right to ask whether we're going to succeed or not. the only question we have a right to ask is, what's the right thing to do? what does this earth require of us if we want to continue to live on it? >> for wendell berry, the defense of the earth is a mission that admits no compromise. this quiet and modest man who lives and works far from the center of power on a farm in kentucky where his family has lived for 200 years has become an outspoken, even angry advocate for a revolution in our treatment of the land. >> "a warning to my readers." do not think me gentle because i speak in praise of gentleness, or elegant because i honor the grace that keeps this world. i am a man crude as any, gross of speech, intolerant, stubborn, angry, full of fits and furies. that i may have spoken well at times, is not natural. a wonder is what it is. >> berry rarely gives television interviews, but recently, here at st. catharine college, near louisville, he agreed to sit down with me to read some of his work and talk about his passions. >> good mornin

election cycle, it was actually more than $10 billion because most of the groups that analyze it don't look at state, local and referendum elections. and we also brought i think something very different to this. we're saying that, as you have this inflow of money, this huge amount of money flowing in, we also have the stand down of journalism. we have lost tens of thousands of journalists. newsrooms closing down, newspapers cutting back. the worldwide web has not filled the void by any means. and so we have a situation where massive inflow of money and the check and balance of journalism declining. you end up with almost a perfect situation for propagandizing the american people, from managing their debates into a narrow zone where those with the money will invariably prevail. >> let me be particular for a moment. look what's happening to local television stations. in just the last few months gannett company offered $1.5 billion for the 20 local stations of the belo corporation based in dallas. the tribune company $2.7 billion for 19 local stations. sinclair broadcast group, which is the na

. there are so many potential fukushima's. and i don't mean just nuclear power plants, i mean our food system, i mean, you know, climate change. i mean, the expanding wars, the attack on our civil liberties. you know, we are up against the wall on so many issues where, as margaret points out, there are perfectly good solutions, if we could just do the right thing. so, you know, this is one of many issues around which we are mobilizing. and i personally am very heartened and encouraged to see how ready people are right now in this moment that we're in, this very historic moment. to see how ready people are to overcome traditional barriers to come together and unify and push against the system, against this big money, wall street dominated political and economic system to push for the real change that our survival actually depends on. and fukushima is just an incredible, timely illustration of this. >> we've seen now that, you know, the increased attention more and more that's being written about it in the media, so we're starting to see some movement. and we have to just keep building that attent

of fuel that you want it to run on. you don't have to find a service station that's open to get the fuel. it's all right there. we lose power, and the family... you could hear everybody talking from all the rooms, even if we're not in the same room, you hear everybody counting down and laughing and giggling, and of course, in 10 seconds the lights come on, everything powers up and you just go right back to working on the computer or watching a show or a movie. >> the funniest thing was that when the power first went off, within the first 15 minutes we got phone calls from our neighbors who go, "how come you still have power?" >> the fact that i don't have to do anything, i don't have to remove extension cords, i don't have to walk through my whole house, unplug, uh, in the cold, in the rain, in the weather-- it's great. >> when the power goes out, your home is at risk. sump pumps stop and basements flood. well pumps stop and clean running water is no longer available. security systems no longer provide protection. but with the standby generator, all of that changes. you can bathe, cook m

design, you don't need those so you come done a rung at a time every place you stop. and even if you miss the hole, they snap in automatically. and then you go back to your hinge, drop this down, and when you've seen everything that a ladder can do, let me show you this. again you have to go back to the hinge, pull out your lock tabs, give it a nice tug, and you'll notice it has these non-slip feet on the bottom which makes, of course, a very nice a-frame trestle. and then, if you connect them together with the lock tabs, you have a very nice base for scaffolding. richard, would you mind handing me that aluminum plank? now, you make this too, don't you? we make these too. this is an option. now, think about this-you can make this as long as you want. you don't have to move that ladder every few feet. you can do the whole side of a house if you want to. do you want to climb up here with me? oh yes. actually, this is my favorite part of the ladder. i get so much work done this way. come on up. are you coming up here or what? how much is this built for? i mean, how much weight? i don't know

, and we don't want to overcook the lentils. so we're just going to kind of let them stand by in the water at the moment windchill while we get to making our mix. we're going to start with one cup of our bulgar wheat. we're going to cover this with some water. this is going to soak and soften so that way it's good to go into our mix once we get all of the other ingredients in. of course, if you want to go gluten-free, if you are gluten sensitive or just living a gluten free life, you could certainly use quinoa and just make sure to cook your quinoa ahead of time. and that would be a really good substitute as well for bulgar wheat. i'm just going to set this aside and we're going to start off with one yellow onion. i'm going to take about two shallots, and we're going to start to dice these up first. my sister, salma, is vegetarian, and she has been for quite some time, so these dishes all today are vegetarian, and she absolutely loves them. they're a couple of her favorites. so, i figured that i'd really surprise her with her special soup, her kibit rohib and her special potato bulgar whea
